To be honest, unless you are very close to them, I don’t think they will mind.

HuskerGirl:  No, it wouldn’t be rude. It’s ok for the bachelorette party to just be your friends.

HuskerGirl:  It is always nice, but I think this is the one time that politics are not taken into account. It’s up to you. I am inviting FI’s sister and my two even though I am not close because I think that it’s nice. As for friends of FI’s that happen to be female is being invitedto the bachelor instead of the bachelorette …

Why does their age matter?  You don’t have to invite them if they’re not your friends, not because they’re older than you are.

Bride’s don’t “throw” their bachelorette, their bms and/or close friends do, so you’re off the hook. If they don’t get invited and there are hurt feelings then you say “Omg, I’m so sorry if you felt left out. ___&___ planned it, I figured you were unable to make it”. They will never go and confront your bms and they won’t be mad b/c they will then realize “oh yeah she had no control over the guest list”

I’m in the camp of where you should invite everyone and let them decide if they wish to come or not…unless you don’t like them/don’t get along, then I wouldn’t.  Sometimes it turns out to be a great time to bond!
